'Tis the season of the NHL playoffs dominating our evening schedules at will, hopefully for the next two months... The Flyers have announced their schedule for the opening round series against the Sabres, which will open up at the Wells Fargo Center this Thursday:
Game 1: Home, Thursday, 4/14 at 7:30PM (CSN)
Game 2: Home, Saturday, 4/16 at 5:00PM (CSN)
Game 3: at Buffalo, Monday, 4/18 at 7:00PM (CSN)
Game 4: at Buffalo, Wednesday, 4/20 at 7:30PM (CSN)
Game 5: Home, Friday, 4/22 at 7:30PM (CSN)*
Game 6: at Buffalo, Sunday, 4/24 at 3:00PM (NBC)*
Game 7: Home, Tuesday, 4/26 time TBD (CSN)*
*you know what the asterisk means by now
With the exception of Game 6, we have a full slate of hometown coverage, with Jim Jackson and Bill Clement calling the games. So who's ready to watch some second season hockey? What's your series prediction?
After the last month and a half of hockey we've seen, it's understandable to have some concerns going into the postseason. But at this point, we know everything can change as soon as the puck drops in the playoffs. If we learned anything about this team or the NHL playoffs last spring, it was that.
Thanks, Mr. Flyer Guy.
